About the Author
Anne Marit Bjørgen was born in Stavanger, Norway. She studied at the Oslo School of Architecture from 1982 to 1988. After working for a major construction firm upon graduation, Bjørgen started a small publishing company in 1992 and, one year later, opened her own bed and breakfast. By 1994, Bjørgen had collected enough information on Norwegian bed and breakfasts to lead to her publishing the first bed-and-breakfast guide to Norway. In addition to traveling throughout Central America, Europe, and the United States, Bjørgen enjoys pursuing various arts and crafts, including beading and furniture remodeling. After living in Oslo for more than twenty years, Bjørgen resides in Møre where she is renovating an old house.
